 ''The Customer'' means the person, firm, or company who the quotation has been addressed to.
 ''The Equipment'' means the goods to be purchased by the Customer under the Contract in which these terms and conditions are incorporated (''the Contract'').

2. ORDER ACCEPTANCE
(a) No order will be considered binding on the Company until
(i) it is officially accepted in writing by a duly authorised representative of the Company; and
(ii) until the Company has received a satisfactory credit clearance; and
(iii) the deposit invoice has been paid in full by the customer, including any taxes or insurances on those sums.
(b) The Conditions may not be modified or varied unless the Company agrees in writing under the signature of the Managing Director or duly authorised representative.
 The Company does not recognise any terms and conditions of contract whether supplied by the Customer or otherwise, unless they are expressly agreed in writing by the Company.  Execution of, compliance with, or implementation of orders does not imply acceptance of the Customer's conditions.  Acceptance of the equipment by the Customer shall be deemed to be unqualified acceptance of the Company’s conditions if such acceptance has not otherwise occurred.
(c) The Customer must accompany the order with sufficient information, including any necessary engineering or other instructions, completed technical specification, to enable the Company to progress with the Contract forthwith, otherwise the Company may amend the prices quoted to cover any increase in cost which has taken place, and extend the time of delivery of the Equipment. The Company does not accept any responsibility for material specifications supplied by the Customer, for which the Customer must provide adequate information for a full assessment of the specification to be undertaken. This to include a minimum of temperatures, combustibility, toxicity or other H&S information, maximum and minimum dimensions, bulk density and flow properties which may be encountered during both normal operating and system stop or shut down procedures, where the Customer deems it essential to the design or specification of the Equipment to be supplied by the Company.

Unless otherwise stated, all quotations by the Company are valid for 30 days from date of quotation.  After expiry of this period, all quotations may be reviewed or withdrawn at the discretion of the Company.

4. PRICE
(a) The prices for the equipment shall be those agreed in writing at the date of the acceptance of the order.
(b) In the event that the delivery lead time for one or any number of items is more than three months the Supplier reserves the right to vary the price relating to those items to take account of variations in cost (including but not by way of limitation, cost of materials, labour, transport and any tax, fee or charge imposed by any Government or other authority, currency fluctuations, or in the rate of import duty payable on such goods taking effect between acceptance of order and delivery).
(c) All prices quoted are exclusive of Value Added Tax or other statutory sales tax, which shall be charged in addition at the rate applicable at the time of invoicing.
